Principal Carrie Norman said: 'I am delighted with this report which takes into account not only the headline attainment figures, but also other measures including progress across the school from each individual child's starting point.

"We are a warm and inclusive school and we are delighted to have made the top ten.

"I want to thank our dedicated staff, wonderful children and supportive parents for a real team effort."
